U.S. Unwired Acquisition
Analysis Group was retained by Jenner & Block LLP, on behalf of U.S. Unwired Inc., in its lawsuit against Sprint Corp. By converting the affiliate status of U.S. Unwired, Sprint assumed greater control over U.S. Unwired's operations, including its customer service. The suit alleged that this conversion was illegal and that it harmed U.S. Unwired. Analysis Group worked with academic affiliate Professor Robert Hall, who estimated the extent of that harm and provided trial testimony. The Analysis Group team was led by Managing Principal Bruce Deal. During the time period of the trial, U.S. Unwired gained considerable market value, and the value gains persisted through the defense expert's testimony and the conclusion of the trial. The case was settled after trial, but before the Court ruled, when Sprint agreed to acquire U.S. Unwired for $1.3 billion.
